The prolonged chelation process for EMPowerplus Q96 fosters the formation of organic acids, such as fulvic and malic acid, which bind with the micronized minerals to form highly bioavailable organic mineral salts. Alkaline minerals (as used in almost all other supplements) are very difficult to absorb and utilize. The overall result with EMPowerplus Q96 is a balanced and appropriately-dosed blend of vitamins and minerals that have shown direct benefits for general health and several specific health conditions.

If you have questions about the medical properties of EMPowerplus Q96 - especially if you are concerned about coming off addictive medical drugs and their side effects - you may wish to contact MicroNutrient Support at 1-866-397-3116 or at www.micronutrientsupport.com (there may be a cost associated with their support).

We now tell anyone and everyone about our success

Verified Purchase

There are so many ways in which EMPowerplus has helped our son. We now tell anyone and everyone about our success! First and foremost, our son is HAPPY. It has been so long since we've seen him happy. This truly is one of the many great benefits of EMPowerplus Advanced. We have seen so much improvement in our son over the last six months that it is hard to tell of each and every success. But you should know that [our son] was picked as Student of the Month for May for the student that demonstrated the most improvement.

No more toxic drugs

by Valued Customer on August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase

I am so grateful my mother learned about Truehope and took a natural approach to her illness. Doctors warned [my mother] never to get pregnant as she would make her illness not only unmanageable but put her baby at risk of severe deformation or even death, due to all the drugs she was taking. No matter how many drugs they tried nothing worked. Then she found Truehope. She has been on EMPowerplus Advanced ever since. It has allowed her to learn and grow as an individual, making positive changes in her life not to mention allowing her to give birth to 2 healthy children. My brother who is now 2 and a half, was born healthy just one year after my mom started EMPowerplus Advanced.

discontinued all psychiatric medication

by Valued Customer on August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase

I have an extensive background in mental health, with graduate degrees from Harvard and U.C. Berkeley. I spent 25 years as a clinical social worker and never saw any results with bipolar clients like the results I have had from EMPowerplus Advanced. I've been taking EMPowerplus Advanced for a little over a year. Since then I have had no manic and no depressive episodes, and have discontinued all psychiatric medication including lithium and sleeping medications. And I keep feeling better and better, particularly more and more relaxed.

mental and physical health improved rapidly and beyond belief

by Valued Customer on August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase

Empowerplus has given me back my health and life and has allowed me to become a wife and mother! My life was not a life. For many of those years I have little or no memory other than pain, both mental and physical - no memory of time with my three children or time with my husband. I began taking Empowerplus vitamin and mineral supplement. With supervision, I weaned off of the drug-cocktail over several months and by continuing with the Empowerplus supplement my mental and physical health improved rapidly and beyond belief.

better able to cope with my stress

by Beverley H on September 01, 2014
Verified Purchase

I've had a diet high in the correct fats, I have exercised regularly and I've taken some of the best supplements in the market place. However, after only 30 days of taking Q96 a anxiety condition I've had for a couple of years has basically disappeared. That anxiety condition manifested itself outwardly as a vibration (tremor) so bad that a nurse friend of mine suggested I get tested for Parkinson. That outward manifestation is gone and I can honestly say that I am also feeling better able to cope with my stress and am better able to focus on things.

I got my youthful brain back

by Valued Customer on September 01, 2014
Verified Purchase

I have struggled with mild depression and anxiety my whole life. Although I don't like labels I know I have the symptoms of ADHD. In my early 60's I was struggling evermore with an aging brain. I started using Q96 1 year ago. Fairly quickly I noticed I was more focused, calmer, able to cope with the stress in my life, and there was a renewed clarity and confidence. I feel I got my youthful brain back, and I believe Q96 is continuing to repair and protect me from the nasty aging brain diseases.

I'm better able to handle stressful situations

by Beverley H on September 01, 2014
Verified Purchase

After two weeks of taking Q96 I noticed an improvement in my sleeping patterns. Previously as soon as my head hit the pillow thoughts would take over and my mind wouldn't shut down, now I'm able to fall asleep quickly. I've also noticed an improvement in mood; I now experience significantly less anxiety and depression. I feel that I'm better able to handle stressful situations since taking Q96. It has promoted an overall happier me.

I haven't felt this good in many years

by Lee F on October 01, 2014
Verified Purchase

"The Q96 seems to be excellent so far. I haven't felt this good in many years. I take three in the early part of the day and one later in the day. I get lots of energy, but it is not nervous. In the gym, I rep-ed my medium-heavy weight 15 times in instead of the usual 10, just because I felt like it. The extra muscle cohesion is manifest as lower stress in the muscles. You don't feel the tugging as much and know that this means you have reserve and that injury is unlikely. The two sensations always run together-more strength and less chance of tearing. I attribute this to better neuromuscular coherency and greater cross-sectional hydrogen-bond density (protein-to-water bonding across muscle tissue). Eyesight improved slightly for similar reasons, causing the contacts to fit somewhat better. Also, I have little or no craving for sugar at night (a sign of better nutrient density - absorption), and I seem to be able to fall asleep earlier and therefore rise earlier because the waking time is a hotter burn (again from greater nutrient density/efficiency)."

Allergic to Gingko biloba

by Denise D on November 16, 2014
Verified Purchase

I thought I would try taking this product for mild attention issues and low mood. I took it for about a week and had a very bad headache and felt twinges of anxiety that I have not had in a long time. I dealt with these issues through the use of calming herbs like Passion Flower, Ashwahganda, and holy basil, ample amounts of magnesium ( both oral and transdermal daily) along with mind/ body work, all of which worked very well. After looking at the ingredients I believe that my bad reaction of severe head aches was from the Ginko Biloba. This was my reaction to Ginkgo Biloba in the past as well. It did have a mind clearing effect but I did not like they way I felt on this at all, I prefer my regular mind, :) The head aches went away after stopping the product, as did the twinges of anxiety. It is a individual response of mine as I see that most are having a positive response.

was able to get off the drugs

by Valued Customer on April 07, 2015
Verified Purchase

I just wanted to say thank you to Martin. I've talked to you over the years about a few different issues, and you've always been helpful. I wanted to tell you I was diagnosed with schizophrenia about 2 years, remembered your website a few months back and reached out to find a natural remedy to get off the strong drugs I was on (risperadol). You told me about EmPower Plus, and I worked with that company. The product worked, I was able to get off the drugs with their recommendations and now function without those terrible drugs - that made me drowsy and gave me a blank mind. This was a huge deal for me, as I thought I'd be on those drugs forever. Thank you for your help!

About The Chelation Process
Because minerals are difficult for the body to digest in pure form, the minerals in EMPowerplus Q96 go through a rigorous process that wraps them in organic molecules and binds them to proteins the body can easily recognize and digest. There are many types of chelation in nature and in medicine; the chelation agents used in EMPowerplus Q96 are natural biological agents that are proprietary, as is that technology.

The amount of calcium in 4 capsules of EMPowerplus Q96 is 352 mg. Recent studies indicate that too much calcium is not a good thing, but one could take up to 6-8 capsules daily for a reasonable supplement dosage for calcium. The Tolerable Upper Limit or UL is 2500 mg and the RDA is 1000 mg or more for adults.

Phenylalanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is in the food you eat every day. It has many benefits and no toxicity or side effects when taken appropriately, as in the small doses in EMPowerplus Q96. It goes directly to dopamine and adrenalin and is useful for energy, stress, fatigue, and pain. This is a widely used, safe essential amino acid that is produced by yeasts and bacteria as metabolic byproducts in the breakdown of protein.

Vitamin B6
The form of vitamin B6 is pyridoxine hydrochloride, which is very easily digested and does not cause stomach upset in the dose contained in EMPowerplus Q96. This form of vitamin B6 is created through specialized bacteria and yeasts.

Vitamin B12
EMPowerplus Q96 contains the cyanocobalamin form of vitamin B12. Cyanocobalamin is more stable than methylcobalamin; it also requires more methylcobalamin from supplements to equal the same amount of cyanocobalamin.


Directions for Use

Dosage for Adults
The recommended dosage for adults is two capsules, twice per day.

If you have an ongoing mental or emotional condition and feel better taking higher doses, then go for it. As you increase the dosage, allow 1-2 weeks to stabilize before adding more capsules.

Some take 10 -12 capsules a day or more, but others, even with a history of mental/emotional conditions (very low moods), can do well on 4-6 a day.

The most important factor in determining dosage is how you feel, and gradually increasing the dose until you feel your best works well.

EMPowerplus Q96 will increase your energy levels. If you find that you feel a little too energized, then cut back on the dosage.

EMPowerplus Q96 combines well with almost all medications and health conditions. If you are taking an antidepressant or mood stabilizer, for example, you can continue to take. As you respond to the balanced and chelated micronutrients you may want to taper off some or all of your meds, but you should always make that decision with the counsel of your prescribing doctor. Your doctor will need to know how you are feeling, as that will guide the decisions. It is usually best to taper off slowly, depending on the medication. If you are increasing your EMPowerplus Q96 dosage, do so slowly, one capsule at a time, so you can gauge how you feel on each dosage.

Dosage For Children Varies by Age
Ages 2 and under, one capsule per day.
Ages 2-3, two capsules per day.
Ages 3-5, three capsules per day.
Ages 5 years and above, four capsules per day.
The best way to give EMPowerplus Q96 to children that cannot swallow pills, is to open the capsule and mix it into food or drink. Warm liquids may decrease bioavailability somewhat, but may also make some components absorb more rapidly. Its probably a wash overall, so use what is most convenient for you and your family.


Can I stop taking prescription medications now that I’m taking EMPowerplus Q96?
We do not prescribe or claim to cure, prevent or mitigate any disease. Do not change your course of prescribed medication without consulting your healthcare provider.

Who should not take EMPowerplus Q96 due to the phenylalanine content?
People with Phenylketonuria (PKU), a rare genetic condition, should avoid phenylalanine.
Also, people who currently are being treated for melanoma should not take EMPowerplus Q96 due to the phenylalanine content. Those in remission from cancer should have no issue.

Upset Stomach?
Though EMPowerplus Q96 has very minimal side effects, some may experience stomach upset due to the vitamin and mineral content, especially when first taking the product. Taking EMPowerplus Q96 with food, such as a banana or yogurt, can help ease the problem.

Though rare, some may experience headaches when first taking the product, due to the mineral and vitamin content. If headaches occur, we recommend that you reduce your daily intake to one tablet or capsule daily, and slowly increase to one twice per day, up to the recommended adult dosage of two twice per day.

Pregnant or Nursing Women?
In all cases where there is a known UL (Tolerable Upper Limit) for specific nutrients in pregnancy, 4 capsules of EMPowerplus Q96 is below this level. Although our medical advisory board considers EMPowerplus Q96 safe in pregnancy and breastfeeding, pregnant or nursing women should always consult their healthcare provider before beginning any new supplement program, including EMPowerplus Q96.

Weight Gain? - No
EMPowerplus Q96 should not cause weight gain or a significant increase in appetite. The best thing to do if you find yourself gaining weight is to get more exercise and fill up on fresh, leafy vegetables.

Face Breakouts?
For some people, large amounts of iodine might cause a breakout, but the amount of iodine in EMPowerplus Q96 is minor. One shake of table salt has about as much iodine as EMPowerplus Q96. Iodine is a vital nutrient, and without it the thyroid can't function, and skin may become dry and rough.

Can I take sleep aid products with EMPowerplus Q96?
EMPowerplus Q96 will not interact with sleep aid products. However, some sleep aids slow the brain and other functions the next day.

Fatigue and Sleeplessness?
If you've just stopped taking a medication (to start EMPowerplus Q96), you may feel fatigue and other symptoms, so you will likely need to give your body time to readjust. Please note that we do not recommend that you discontinue any prescribed medications without consulting your healthcare provider.
If you have trouble sleeping at night, we suggest you take EMPowerplus Q96 in the morning and the early afternoon no later than 5 pm. It is even better to take the afternoon dose by 4 pm or even 3 pm. If taken in the evening, EMPowerplus Q96 may cause sleeplessness in some people. If sleep is a problem, you might also try scaling back your dosage.

If this occurs and persists, we suggest you stop EMPowerplus Q96 for a week, and then restart at a lower dose. Then increase to the normal dose after a week and see how it goes (see the recommended dosages for children above). EMPowerplus Q96 should be used at the proper dose; if your child is taking more than 4 capsules per day, that might overstimulate him/her.

Regarding Additional Vitamins and Minerals

Because EMPowerplus Q96 is a combination that relies on a precise balance of ingredients, for best results, we generally recommend that no additional mineral supplements be taken along with it, other than as recommended by a customer’s healthcare provider. However, in cases where people may wish to take additional supplements, we suggest you consult the ingredient dose on the EMPowerplus Q96 ingredient label, add the dose of additional supplements you wish to take, and compare the value against the Tolerable Upper Limits set by the Institute of Medicine (this information is easily found online). You can then make an informed decision (along with your healthcare provider) about whether the additional supplement is appropriate for you.
